Can't believe it, but I actually got to work outside in the garden today - December 24th! It was in the 50s today! No snow yet! Only did a little bit of digging for a makeshift drainage ditch. Last year and the year before I have gotten a little pool of water in the low area of the garden. Now it drains on down the hill. I can see a big difference.

I've been collecting lots of cardboard to use as mulch in the garden in the spring. Everytime I go to ALDI I always get a bunch. I emptied out the shed of all that and made a large pile near the garden with it, then covered it with bags of leaves so that it doesn't blow away.

Placed an order for seeds from Baker Creek. I keep telling myself no more seeds, but I'm an addict!

And I got my Christmas for myself today - 10 Backwoods Home magazines!

Glad I learned now that she needs alot of work, I arrived tired, stressed and sore from when she bucked me off and it had taken me 1 1/2 hours to get there, could of almost hiked it that fast.

We opened Christmas gifts today, so I added a leatherman and 3 books to my prep gear--one on canning, a survival food storage book and a gardening/mini-farm book. Plus, I canned 6 jars of beans and prepared four 2-liter bottles of water to add to my stash.

HAPPY XMAS EVERYONE!

I gave my brother the GHB today and it went down really well. Amazing!


Iv got 60 towards my Kindle, so Im going to watch for tomorrow as Amazon start a sale. I doubt if it will cover the Kindle but you never know.

Went for a walk with the dog this morning, and noticed a lot of stuff I could use to build a fire, use to carry water etc. It was quite amazing how much there was.

I bought my daughter her first bow this year, so today I expect we will be out back shooting Teddy Bears.
Also It would seem our food store has outgrown the pantry. Need to work on that as well.

Took some of the big cardboard boxes that seem to have multiplied around here lately, opened them up and laid them out in the yard where I want more garden beds when it warms up enough. Covered them about a foot deep with partially done compost and then covered that with straw. It's big enough for 3 or 4 summer squash plants.

Modified the Saiga to have a Tapco trigger and trigger guard. While attempting to put on the bullet guide I got the hole drilled and ran the tap in, while backing the tap out it broke inside the hole..oops. Anyway it will still work with the original magazine as I have not modified the magazine retainer assembly. Frustrating but not fatal. I also mounted a hand grip. I also mounted a 3X9X40 scope with a sidemount.

Took the dog out today down a different walk, but saw very little flopsom that you could use for survival purposes, that was without going into peoples gardens/yards and going donw bins.

Spent the whole day trying to find a much needed envelope but Dad chucked it over his shoulder and now cant find it. The prep being - if youv got something important then put it away straight away and dont expect it to be on the ruddy floor a month later. Oh protect me from sheeple!

I think that if you have a dog that will bite you to get food then running low on pineapple is the least of your concerns.

No snow and not too cold temperatures allowed me to work outside today! Got about 300lbs of chicken poop mixed with leaves, and spread that over some cardboard I put down to expand the garden. In the spring it should be nice and ready to plant. Little by little, I'm going to make my garden as big I am able to.

Also spent some good time last night reading through my Christmas present to myself - 10 Backwoods Home Magazines. Lots of good info in there.

Downloaded Doomsday Preppers from youtube (you use www.keepvid.com). Watching it now. Interesting. Definitely a big violation of OPSEC, but interesting nonetheless.
